After tying the Conference USA record for touchdown passes with six and running for another in Houston's 70-30 win over No. 24 Tulsa, Cougar sophomore quarterback Case Keenum has been named the National Offensive Player of the Week, the Walter Camp Foundation has announced.

Keenum completed 24-of-37 passes for 402 with no interceptions while rushing for 43 yards and a touchdown. He became the first UH quarterback in 16 years (Jimmy Klingler, 7 TDs vs. Rice, 1992) to throw for at least six scores in one game, and he extended his streak of 300-yard games to 11, which is a school record. It was also the third 400-yard game of his career. Keenum led the Cougars 14 points in the first quarter, 28 in the second, 21 in the third and then concluded the day with the seven points in the fourth on his six-yard touchdown run.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season. Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Walter Camp, "The Father of American football," first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp - a former Yale University athlete and football coach - is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation - a New Haven-based all-volunteer group - was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.

In addition to the Walter Camp honor, Keenum was one of six players nationally to receive a helmet sticker for outstanding play by ESPN's College GameDay Final crew on their show late Saturday night.
